We drove up to this quiet neighborhood and soon saw a pier. We inquired about the tour inside a quaint store adjacent to a fire department. It was clean and reasonably priced. Capt Rich arrived and took us on board. We were given safely instruction...More

Last minute decision to take a manatee tour worked out well for 4 friends. Nice little boat, only 6 passengers, room to move around. Got to see 6-yes 6- manatees! The one momma and her TWINS were a blessing, unlike our blurry photos. Give them...More

Due to the bad red tide at the time, there wasn’t many manatees to see, after looking for an hour in the beautiful mangroves, we saw dolphins, birds and alligators but no manatees unfortunately. We were just about to dock when our wonderful, informative captain...More

We were out on a manatee sightseeing tour with Captain Nate and had absolutely stunning views on the South Florida wildlife. Bald Eagles, alligators and, most importantly, manatees. We observed a mother manatee feeding its calf and two manatees chewing on mangrove roots. Nate navigated...More

Response from SmillerNJ | Reviewed this property |

The boats are very fragile friendly and can take motorized wheelchairs.
